Redworms and Kindergarteners

My class has been taking care of 50 wiggly Redworms in a compost bin. All kindergarten classes had a chance to learn about compost and worms from a Metro educator this week. Everyone observed worms carefully and checked what was in a compost pile. It was messy, but everyone enjoyed watching little wigglers. After the observation, they learned what food could go to a compost. My class has been “sharing” some food with Redworms, so they knew pretty well. Our class compost bin has beautiful yummy soil. We will use it in the TIS garden when Spring arrives.
